The vast majority of our projects are individual designs personalised to the client. In most cases we start the process of realization from contacting the client and discussing their needs and investment possibilities. Based on these data we can prepare a binding offer with a two week expiry date so that the client has time to make a final decision and make any changes. Usually, technical issues after the presentation of the offer are agreed on the same day so that we can proceed to the next stage, which is signing the contract.
The contract is a six-page document setting out information ranging from the parameters of the building through technical issues, equipment, choice of façade and information on the correct preparation of the substrate. The contract also contains information on payment terms and forms, the amount of the advance payment, the completion date and contractual penalties to protect both parties.
Preparing the foundation
The majority of customers deciding to purchase from our company receive the scheme of making the foundation for the ordered object already at the stage of signing the contract. However, we have some general schemes which should be followed while making the mentioned foundation. In the case of all modules with aluminium structures or full-wall PVC showcases we recommend that the foundations are made in accordance with the art of construction. This concerns specifically the frost zone. There are cases when such seemingly insignificant things have a significant impact on various unpleasant events. We know from experience that an improperly made foundation may result in lifting or even twisting of the structure by a few centimetres after the winter season, which causes, for example, incorrect opening of HST or improper closing of doors or windows.
When making point foundations, footings or foundation slabs, we recommend keeping this in mind. It will certainly have an impact on the later comfortable use of the building throughout the season. For standard containers (building containers), we recommend making the foundation of a road curb or concrete blocks laid flat. Both ways should be done keeping in mind an important rule. The foundation should be made of elements spaced every 1m around its circumference, unless the ground design you have received from us states otherwise.
Connection of utilities
All our customers purchasing modules equipped with water, sewage and electrical installations can count on the scheme of distribution of said utilities in order to properly perform ground work in the indicated place before placing the object. We recommend that the water and sewage connection is made outside the contour of the container (usually on the back wall of the building). Drain pipe 110 should be connected with a 90 degree elbow and the water supply connection with a hose with 0.5 inch internal thread. It is important to remember to properly insulate both of these connections against negative temperatures. This can be done with a PVC pipe, e.g. fi300, by letting it out of the ground and leading the water and sewage connection out of it, and then insulating it with, for example, wool or foam. It is also possible to make a box insulating the said connection. We do not recommend making connections in the floor of the container as access to the installation will be difficult in case of failure.
Multistage quality control is an element we introduced in 2019. It covers 100% of the modules shipped and is a guarantee of the correct execution of the Projects you have ordered.
